Three panels present different views of crime in San Francisco: narcotics, prostitution, and vehicle theft. The height of each map shows the relative density of each type of crime, as if crime were elevation. The mountain peaks are exaggerated, jutting out into the viewer’s face.
Drug arrests occur throughout the city, but are heavily concentrated in the Tenderloin and Mission neighborhoods. Prostitution shows a stark contrast, with nearly all arrest occurring along only a few streets. And vehicle theft occurs heavily throughout nearly the entire city, highlighting that you can get your car stolen nearly anywhere you park.
